TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Kenilworth Volunteer Fire Department held its Make-A-Wish Fill-A-Boot in the Town of Tonawanda Saturday afternoon.

This was the fire department's ninth Wish Fill-A-Boot event in six years, with 100 percent of the donations collected supporting upcoming summer wishes here in Western New York, which Make-A-Wish says is the busiest season.

Make-A-Wish grants 100 local wishes annually and relies on community support to grant the wish experiences.

On September 12th and 13th Make-A-Wish is holding its 25th annual radiothon on 97Rock and is calling on other area fire departments to hold their own Make-A-Wish Fill-A-Boot event ahead of the radiothon.
